Life Changing Eavesdropping

Daily Prompt: Hear No Evil Tell us about a conversation you couldn’t help but overhear and wish you hadn’t. Mine is one I am  glad I heard. Eventually lead to an emotional fitness (emotional intelligence exercise). A laugh first:
Cartoon about eavesdropping.

What changed my life: Not sure why the people talking didn’t see me and the fact is they might not have been talking about me. This was what I heard:

“Sad she doesn’t smile more, she lights up the room when she does.”

“I so agree.”

At that stage in my life I always tried not to smile.  I had and have an overbite, a fairly big one, so I tried to hide it.  Back then with the ego-centrism of a teen, I assumed I was the topic of conversation.  Lucky me, for I took it to heart and smiled freely thereafter.


To make a difference, a smile  has to be genuine.   With a bit of practice your smiles can always be genuine.  It all depends on where you put your thoughts. Thought control is key in developing your emotional intelligence.

Here is an EFTI Poster Coach, called Strong Body and Soft Face.  Both are Emotional Fitness Exercises that keep you the boss of mad, bad, or sad feelings. r.

To use  as a  poster coach post it where you will see it often throughout the day as a reminder of the all you have been given.  For more instructions about how to practice any of the Twelve Easy Emotional Fitness Exercises visit this web page.


Remember to look for the good, smile as often as you can do so. Always share and care what you find helps you get and stay emotionally strong.   My hope is you will find my posts of value and practice internet kindness by sharing.

All posters posted on my blog can be obtained at the EFTI Store.  Many are free.

Thank you for all you do and as always stay strong.
